Yemen's al-Qaeda Fanatic
(With enough avaricious scheming to go around)

How can it get any better than this?
Security contractors waxing ecstatic –
Lou Berger hiring more fraudulent billers –
And they owe it all to an al-Qaeda fanatic.

Two courier packages of PETN explosives
Didn't blow up but still were traumatic.
But is that sufficient for the Joint Chiefs of Staff
To go after Yemen's al-Qaeda fanatic?

Still the Chiefs are excited. Redeploying Xe's forces
From Iraq and Afghanistan was problematic
Without the prospect of a new rationale
For trying to bribe an al-Qaeda fanatic.

The Emir of Yemen envies Afghanistan's gambit
And believes that the spoils of war are automatic.
Corruption by Karzai is the perfect example.
But can he profit from his al-Qaeda fanatic?

Security contractors are praying the Emir
Has that old Karzai flair for the melodramatic
So the Joint Chiefs of Staff will have no other choice
But to sic mercenaries on al-Qaeda's fanatic.
